December: Which Sister Are You?

Trickster's Choice by Tamora Pierce

Let's discuss the differences between the Balitangs daughters: young, quiet Dove, a very observant girl, and her older sister Sarai, the romantic ingenue with unlikely strength. Which one do you resemble? Do you have sisters? If so, is your relationship like Dove and Sarai's?

I'm Dove, but not at all quiet!

I have an older sister.

Melissa Walker said...

So am I, LW!

And I have an older sister too!

Erin said...

I think I'm a mix of the two. :)

Dia Calhoun said...

I am not a romantic ingenue like Sarai. I am quiet, but I don't know if I am as strong as Dove is deep down. I've been tested in many ways and have found some courage and strength, but nothing on a heroic level.

I hope I'm like Dove the majority of the time. :~)

Tamora said...

I'm neither--that's the fun of creating characters! But I'm like Dove in that I like books, and I'm like Sarai in that I get passionate about things--too much so, I've been informed on occasion. 8-\

I'd say I'm something like Dove for the fact that I like watching people, and listening to them talk. Sometimes when I find something I really like to do or think about, though, I am very passionate about it and will practically do anything to defend it, so maybe I'm a little bit like Sarai.

I have a younger sister and she and I are very close, I think we're much closer than Dove and Sarai, even though I think that if I'm like Dove, Hali is like Sarai. -if that makes any sense-
